It’s almost the end of 2021! Can you believe it? (This is Elana, again—I really wanted to speak with you one more time before the end of the year and say thank you!)
What a year! The coronavirus has still been with us in Israel…causing lockdowns and hardships for so many. And keeping you, our friend, from being able to come visit on a tour! Lord willing, maybe one day soon, corona will be done, and you can come, and we can show you our beautiful Israel (and cook an amazing meal for you!).
In the middle of such a hard year (there was a war for almost two weeks as well!), you have been such a blessing. Through your support, we have been able to help so many who are suffering in Israel—those who lost their jobs because of corona; believers in congregations that were hit hard; and Holocaust survivors who were shut-in for months and months.
Also, at Hanukkah, you helped bring joy to so many precious people at the Ethiopian Jewish Community Center in the place where I grew up, Ashkelon.
Through your generosity and kindness, we were able to provide funds to help them build a big bomb shelter (which will also be used as a classroom) and bless them with new computers and tablets to help the children who go there after school.
Thank you for your love and support of our ministry. We are so blessed to have you as a partner, as together we show (and tell) my people who Jesus REALLY is.
I am so excited about a new opportunity that Ron will be telling you more about next month—Shelanu Kids! Before corona, I used to travel all the time. I loved to travel to Africa and other countries, helping in orphanages and wherever I could. I am so excited to be (Lord willing) going to Africa in January to meet all the children (many of whom are Ethiopian Jews!) at the orphanage that our friend, Joash, oversees. My heart is so ready!
Would you please consider making a special donation here at the end of the year so we can finish 2021 strong and be ready to hit the ground running in 2022?
I so appreciate you and your heart for Yeshua, our Messiah.
Shalom and love,
Until all Israel is saved (Rom 11:26),
